The recent comments made by Alan T about the plight of birds during the freezing weather got me thinking that the Local Group could and should be proactive here. I had a word with some colleagues and the result is that I have just ordered 25Kg of seed which I hope to put out in the Holywell and maybe Rising Sun area during this week. I'll ensure I find out where it is most appropriately put. I realise there is a thaw now, but I'm sure feed will still be needed and welcomed. This has been funded by members of the group and not by RSPB funds.
I'm pleased to have noted that the needs of birds and other wildlife have been recently highlighted in the local media.
I am nursing a sore 'gob' at the moment after dental treatment, but hope to be out in the above areas this week.
